An Internet connection
A smartphone (IOS/Android)
The Ipsum App
Your best efforts to save energy!
Everyone in the Netherlands is offered a smart meter. If you do not have one yet, then go to www.slimmemeters.nl to see when it’s your turn. It’s good to know that the smart meter is free!
Your smart meter has one free gate (the P1). Plug in Ipsum, download the app, and you will receive your personal energy insight on your appliances.
Also in other countries smart meters will be rolled out. For more information if Ipsum is available in your country please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our dedicated team of experts, including 3 assistant professors at the University of Twente, have spent 4 years figuring out complex algorithms that do this magic trick.
We’re the only company in the world to do this - naturally we are extremely proud of our achievement!
Ipsum recognises the following appliances; tumble drier, washing machine, oven, refrigerator/freezer and boiler/water boiler. In a nutshell: we see a lot, but not everything yet! There is no need for you to designate your appliances or install any plugs. All you have to do is look at your smartphone. We plan to spend a lot of time in the near future adding more appliances, so that you can achieve even more savings.
Free apps from energy suppliers
These only provide general insight. You still do not know where to save money, or how.
Installation of measuring device on the power cable
Requires the assembly of a more expensive box on the power cable. More complex and requires technical assistance. You often still have to designate your appliances yourself.
Energy plugs for each appliance
Each electric appliance is fitted with a separate plug. This solution can be considered an upgrade for Ipsum, but only if you are prepared to pay substantially more. Frequent switching is often possible.
A fun gadget with which you can regulate your heating at home remotely via specific settings. Only provides general insight into energy consumption, similar to the free apps distributed by energy suppliers, therefore does not lead to less consumption.
Ipsum guarantees the security and privacy of its customers. All data is encrypted.
Ipsum keeps personal details and energy data strictly separated by saving them to two separate databases. Information is not shared with others, so you don’t have to worry about privacy.
